At the end of 1863, Confederate cavalry leader Nathan Bedford Forrest began operations in west Tennessee with a small unit, but he managed to recruit several thousand volunteers, including a number of veteran soldiers, and he whipped them into shape so they were combat ready before their first confrontation. Upon hearing of Forrest’s growing aptitude for adaptive warfare, General Sherman wrote to Union commander in chief Henry Halleck that men like Forrest were "men that must all be killed or employed by us before we can hope for peace. They have no property or future, and therefore cannot be influenced by anything except personal considerations". Sherman repeatedly ordered his Memphis commanders to catch "that devil Forrest", essentially putting a bounty on his head. As far as skirmishes go, Fort Pillow was a completely unremarkable fight. Before attacking, Forrest demanded the unconditional surrender of the Union garrison, a normal custom of his, and he warned the Union commanding officer that he would not be responsible for his soldiers' actions if the warning went unheeded. What made Fort Pillow markedly different was that a sizable amount of the Union garrison defending the Fort was comprised of black soldiers, which particularly enraged Confederate soldiers whenever they encountered those they viewed as former slaves in the field. It is still unclear exactly how the fighting unfolded, but what is clear is that an unusually high percentage of Union soldiers were killed, and the Confederates were accused of massacring black soldiers after they had surrendered. Primary sources tell conflicting accounts of what happened at Battle of Fort Pillow, leaving scholars to piece together the battle and determine whether Confederate soldiers purposely shot Union soldiers after they had surrendered. The Fort Pillow Massacre: The History and Legacy of the Civil War's Most Notorious Battle chronicles the history of the Civil War's most infamous ma 1. Language: English. Narrator: Troy McElfresh.

The Billion Dollar Spy: A True Story of Cold War Espionage and Betrayal by David E. Hoffman chronicles the six-year relationship between the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and engineer Adolf Tolkachev, who spied on the Soviet Union for the United States. Tolkachev was one of the most productive CIA spies during the Cold War, persistent in his undertakings to ensure the undoing of the Soviet Union's aviation developments, which he personally had a hand in. He was allegedly betrayed by a disgruntled former CIA agent who gave his identity to the Soviet secret police, the Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (KGB). While the CIA was largely meant for intelligence analysis at its outset, troubles with the Soviet Union caused the CIA to expand into espionage and covert operations. However, it was difficult to run spy operations within the Soviet Union itself because of heightened national security and suspicion. For these reasons the CIA had trouble....
